Kuchipudi dance tells the universal story with mime, expression, body movements and footwork patterns. It is a unique style amongst the classical dances of India. It speaks through manifold rhythmic patterns, melodic gestures and subtle facial expressions, creates a new world of ecstasy and gives an ethereal existence. This dance is a combination of Tandava and Lasya (the majestic and lyrical graceful style) and a combination of Natya Dharmi (conventional movements) and Loka Dharmi realistic movements.
A classical dance style of India originating from the temples of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in the South of India. It has since evolved from dance drama style into a solo dance form.
